Walk a mile in my shoes 12

I only have one of this pair as the other one was cut off as I broke my left leg wearing it:

Previously they had walked many miles. On the day last wore, I was in the Lake District. I climbed to submit of Eagle Crag, in the Borrowdale valley, I then walked across to summit of Sargent Graf before returning to Eagle Crag submit to decline.

I was descending down rocks and the ledge walking on became thinner, I then placed a wrong foot and plummeted. As I plummeted it, there was no time for my life to flash through my head; there was just a feeling that I would not know anything beyond impact. However I landed and there was relief of being alive and aware of landing. But then I looked at leg and simultaneously pain kicked in. My leg looked like jelly it was clear the bones were not intact. 

I rang mountain rescue who cut the boot off. The Great North Air Ambulance also arrived and landed a little below my location then I was taken on stretcher in the helicopter to Carlisle hospital.

I have some years put a plant pot in the boot, now only has one.
